Rain City Fencing Center was founded by Barbara Todd Heiner, Steve Colton and Greg Jones. We opened our doors in May 2000 with Maestro Garik Balayan on board and only a handful of students. Since then we have taught thousands of students to fence through our classes, summer camps and school programs. Our competitive program has also grown, with many Rain City fencers competing on the local, national, and — occasionally — international levels. Rain City is now recognized as the premier junior fencing program in Washington State.
